Of the 561 cars in the Feb. 21-23 auction, 410 were sold, the car dealer reported.Some 27,800 car-shoppers and admirers came during the three days, including 7,000 on Friday, which was a free day, a record attendance, up 20 percent from last year.Competition for the cars was “very intense at times between buyers,” McCormick said in a statement. Some buyers viewing a live Internet feed of the auction telephoned bids from all around the country and abroad.

Several cars with high price tags led the way to the income record. A pristine 1960 Chrysler 300 F sold for $105,000. Other top cars included a 1968 Shelby GT350 Mustang, $78,750, and a 1968 Jaguar XKE Roadster, $70,875.
